Steve Carell Hints That 'Anchorman Three' Could Happen

Fans of iconic comedy Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy could be in luck after of the the film's stars hinted at the possibility of third installment.


Steve Carell, who played the lovable idiot Brick Tamland, has said he would love to do another film with Ron and the rest of the Channel 4 team, if the opportunity presented itself.

In an interview with Variety the 40-Year-Old Virgin actor said he had a blast making the previous two movies and would definitely do a third.


He said: "If they make another one, I'll do another one. Those are really fun. That's just hanging out with friends and being silly."

However, with no confirmed plans it doesn't look like it's on the cards just yet, so fans of the other two will have to wait a little while longer if they are going to see the gang back together.

If you really can't wait though, Carell also said he would be keen to get in the studio with Ron himself.


Will Ferrell who plays the news reader/Lothario has announced he is making a 'Rob Burgundy Podcast', which, unsurprisingly, will be hosted by Channel 4's main star.

When asked about taking part he said: "Sure, if he wants me to come in and say some non-sequiturs as Brick, of course. I would in a second."

This isn't the first time Carell has hinted at a possible trilogy.


Speaking on Good Morning Britain in 2016 he said: "No, we never discussed it, but I heard in an interview [with director, Adam McKay] he mentioned that he might have an idea for Anchorman 3.

"But it might not happen for 10 or 15 years, so take a big deep breath."

As well as the Anchorman films one of Carell's most famous roles was that of the hapless Michael Scott, the regional manager of the Dunder Mifflin Scranton Branch, in the US version of The Office.



The cast of the hit show got back together for a special episode of Saturday Night Live, with Carell launching into a monologue on the show, and then answering a bunch of questions from three of his former The Office co-stars - hidden in the crowd - about a possible reunion.

An 'audience member' watching the monologue asked: "My question is, will you ever reboot The Office?"

However, unlike Anchorman if Carrell is to be believed, there doesn't seem to be any plans whatsoever for him to reprise this iconic role.

To which Carrell replied: "I don't think so. It was a great experience. I love all those people, but I just don't think it's the best idea. I think maybe we should just leave it alone."
